Episode 3 - Hydro-Painting Finish

10-12-2015 07:07 AM by Mike | 2 comments »

Hi All; This week I was very busy so I didn’t have time for a more traditional project video. I did want to try a new finishing technique I had come across called Hydro-Painting. It involves spray paint and a bucket of water. The resulting box is from one of my first attempts. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks, Mike View on YouTube

Four-Poster Captain's Bed #3: Creating the shop workspace

09-16-2015 07:37 AM by RobII | 0 comments »

I spent over a third of my recent life in a small home with a single-car garage. One year for Christmas or my birthday, my wife bought me a set of Simpson Strong-Tie brackets designed by them to be all you needed (metal-wise) to build a shop bench. You got to pick the dimensions and, in part, the layout, but the bench would have a top surface and a shelf. I never got to build it while married to her because she kept filling up the garage with yard-sale junk. I had a narrow path from the g...

Traveling Anarchist's Tool Chest #1: Getting the Carcass Ready

03-16-2015 07:01 PM by Luke Addington | 5 comments »

Here’s my progress so far on my Traveling Anarchist’s Tool Chest. I got a very good deal on some wide Sapele so I decided to go with that. It’s starting to become one of my favorite woods. It stays dead flat, saws beautifully, and responds to the chisel very well. The interlocked grain, while a bit difficult to plane, I think will prove to be worth the effort in the long run. The crazy widths you can find it in are nice too! For the most part I lifted the dimensions from ...

Childs Play #6: Small Tool Chest #2.. Done Just Need to Finish..

12-20-2014 05:33 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

I am not exactly sure how I pulled this off in 8 days but I have finished up the build portion of the chest and tomorrow will be putting some finish on it. With the speed of the build I didn’t get as many pics as I had hoped but here is a series that picks up where the last entry left off to present. I hope to have this up in the projects section tomorrow sometime :D The lid ended up slightly smaller than the case (I measured once and cut twice so ...

Bridal chest #5: Almost final assembly

08-01-2014 05:52 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Today was some odds and ends and final assembly of the bridal chest. It’s not complete. I’ve got to get a little more maple to finish off with some moldings around the lid lip and the skirt. The stainless piano hinge is being mounted on the cover..Here you can see the hinge mounted to the chest along with an arm that locks the lid in a 90 degree open position.Also, I’ve made a box with divider out of maple that slides along the top inside of the chest..Here it is slid ove...

Bridal chest #1: Prep / glue-up

07-18-2014 06:46 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

My youngest daughter is getting married in September. I’ve decided long ago that i’d make each (I’ve got two) a bridal chest when that time came. Well it’s here and I’m doing it. I’ve made blanket chests before but they’ve been made with raised panels. This one is much simpler. Almost Shaker in nature for the design. It will have large finger or box joints at the corners. I think I’ll make a simple jig for my router to accomplish that. It will b...

Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest #5: Highlights (part 4)

07-18-2014 03:04 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

Sorry for the delay. It’s been a busy week. For all the details, head on over to my woodworking blog . In the meantime‚Ķ here’s the next set of progress images… I finish assembling the drawers and fitting them to their bays. Not piston-fit, but as close as I’ve ever come. I can’t stress how important it is to take your time at this step. Take super light passes off the sides of the drawers and keep retesting the fit to the point of insanity. As so...

Full extension drawers #1: Prototype

01-18-2014 09:28 AM by yuridichesky | 8 comments »

Guys and gals, I need your advise. I’m cooking my underbench chest of drawers to store some tools. And I’m dreaming about full extension drawers. Here’s what I’m up to so far: half-wooden shop-made full extension slides. Two aluminum extrusion profiles and wooden runner: The extrusions are cut in flash into carcase wall and drawer: I think whole idea is more or less clear, anyway see some pictures of drawer in action. Fully closed: ...
